You Don’t Know What I Know

You don’t know what I know

You don’t feel what I feel

You don’t see what I see

You can’t hear what I hear


You are not and never will be me.

Heaven Help The Ones

May 24, 2018

Whales Tail Beach in Costa Rica ~ Photo by Patrice

Heaven help the ones
Who lead the march
Across desert bare
Filled with trees
But nothing there.

Smoking hot
The earth upon their feet
Sending curses up
To gaunt, hollow cheeks.

No one calls, no one speaks
All is silent
Except for wailing
Seeping, creeping sounds
Calling, calling souls
To their sad defeat.

Let us help
Let us find salvation for
Those who need
Those who cry unmercifully.

Let The Heart Beat Lightly

May 23, 2018

Eagle ~ Stipple Art by Patrice for B.C. Central Credit Union

Let the heart beat lightly
Let the soul sound loud.

Let its words be heard
Way beyond distant clouds.

Let no man stumble
Nor woman harmed.

Let us all soar
Leading lives that seem charmed.

We Live In

Old Farm ~ photo by Patrice

Amazing place
We live in
Soak it up, savour
Breathe in.

Feel the rain pouring down
The sun soaking in
To the ground fertile and prized
Growing treasures
Where creatures thrive
Live in.

We have it all
We are part of this place
This place, this world
We live in.

Husk Falls

Seeds, Tree and Squirrel ~ Photo by Patrice

Husk falls, dropping to the ground
Seeds of wonder spattered all around.

Dead or dying not necessarily their fate
Taking food, taking strength
From the earth, the ground on which
They were spat, they grow and create.

Slowly, quietly up to mighty trees
Strong and wondrous they unfold
Dropping seeds that too
Like magic wonder, grow.

Picky Partners

May 17, 2018

Mal pups ~ Illustration by PatricePicky partners don’t always last
Sometimes they bicker and fight
It goes on and on
For whatever reason it just
Lasts and lasts.

Picky partners need to let up
Knowing being together
Is what needs to
Forever last.

When I Find The Secret

May 16, 2018

When I Find The Secret ~ Photo by Patrice

When I find the secret
When I’m fine
When I find what’s behind
The smoke smouldering
Over a red black sky.

When I find my secret
That secret holding all
The answers
All the answers for
All time.
